Well that was incredible. 2 songs in and I was in tears. Just so so good.
I've waited a long long time to see The National and it lived up to every expectation and more.
The new songs sound fantastic (even Turtleneck), there was a great mix from the previous few and Matt was in great form both vocally and with the lols #balloongate.
A band at their very best.
Really happy for the guys on here who got Pink Rabbits. Still doesn't give me the feels, but hearing it live did increase its like-ability somewhat.
We didn't get Brainy or England either but hey-ho. I'm so happy at the moment it doesn't really matter!
I had a lovely couple standing next to me who were clearly enjoying it as much as I was. We exchanged a few glances and smiles, knowing we were all witnessing something special.
Hope you all enjoyed that as much as I did!
